For the past...two or three weeks, I'll say, my computer has been shutting down at random. There isn't really a specific time period of when it does this because sometimes it'll shut down after about 15 minutes of use or less, and other times it'll shut down after a few hours. Anyway, when it shuts down the screen turns black and then it goes into this blue screen with an error message on it. I'm good with computers to an extent, but I don't really understand what the problem is. The blue screen just basically says that my computer encountered an error and needed to shut down so there could be a problem with the BIOS. Then it gives me options on how to turn my computer back on along with an error code with a bunch of numbers after it. (If it helps anyone, next time my computer shuts down I could copy the code and I'll send it to someone.) One of the options it gives me to restart my computer is to shut it down manually and then while it's starting up again to press F8 and start Windows with Safe Mode. But when I do that, the second the screen comes up with my username, the computer just shuts down with the blue screen again. The only way for me to get my computer to turn back on and stay on is to choose the option on the F8 screen that says "start Windows with most recent componets (the most recent settings that worked)". When my computer starts back up for real and I'm able to get on my username, a error message pops up asking me if I want to send a error report. I sent an error report at one time just to see if it would further explain what is wrong with my computer, and the window that popped up on Internet Explorer said that they didn't know what the problem was and the only real possible thing that it could be is that I had a Stop Error. So I looked into Stop Errors and found a tutorial online on how to fix them, but I don't think that I have one because none of the things that I needed to delete if I had them where in my computer so I'm pretty sure that I'm safe from that. Also, I have Spyware and Adware blocks on my computer as well as a Firewall so I'm almost 99% sure that I wouldn't have a Stop Error anyway. So now I'm thinking that I have a problem with my BIOS like the blue screen mentioned. The only thing I really know about BIOS is that it's the software that deals with turning on and off your computer. Am I right? I don't even think I fully understand what BIOS is. :/ But anyway I just wanted to know if any of you out there know a way that I could fix this problem. It's hard to really do anything with my computer shutting down at random because when it shuts down, obviously I lose everything that I was working on if it wasn't saved. We're extremely close to just taking my computer to be fixed, but as all of you know fixing computers isn't exactly cheap even if the problem is small. But I'm not even sure extactly what the problem IS so if it's a bigger problem then getting my computer fixed will most definitely be very expensive. If it is possible to fix this problem myself I would like to be able to do that, so does anyone know of any other options I could try? Does anyone really understand what I'm talking about, or had a problem similar to this that they solved? I would really appreciate it if any of you can help me. If any extra details are needed, please feel free to message me and I'll try to explain this even further

The best thing you can do is isolate the problem one by one. Possible problems could be:
-corrupted files on os
-failing hard drive
-motherboard problems: bios, add on cards, ram etc.

-The first thing you have to do is to check your computers memory(ram). You can do this by disabling the 'quick boot' option in the bios so that your computer will check the ram integrity when booting.

-if you have add-on cards, remove them and leave off only the basic configuration.

-reinstall windows or better still format before reinstalling.

jezzbb is correct sir jairkofx

The Blue Screen of Death (also known as a stop error, BSOD, bluescreen, or Blue Screen of Doom) is an error screen displayed by some operating systems, most notably Microsoft Windows, after encountering a critical system error which can cause the system to shut down, to prevent damage.//(Wikipedia.org).


This is the basic things to do when you encounter Blue screen of death.

-check your hard disk for bad sector.
-Do a memory/RAM test.


note...
Always take note of the error code/s it display.

So this is how it began. In my house was a blackout and i was on mine computer. And everything just turned off as mine computer when i was working on it. After that 10 min later i turned it on again when the power came. It asked me if i want to turn my windows normally or safe mode... I clicked start windows normally. Then it appears starting windows... Then i was waiting 30 seconds for him to start windows but then appeared some blue screen with some error 0x0000f4 and after a few seconds it just shuts down and it restarts automatically and i dont even click anything and then it goes again and again..
